Divorce Lawyers For Men
Why Divorce Can Be So Hard For Men
For any two people facing the end of their marriage, divorce can make them feel like failures. What had seemed like the best decision they’d ever made now seems like the worst, and there’s no easy way out of it. But a growing number of men are now saying that for them in particular, divorce is especially devastating.
Having an experienced lawyer on your side can help lessen the emotional turmoil of divorce, especially if you feel the courts are biased. At Kristopher K. Greenwood and Associates, our skilled attorneys will work tirelessly to make sure you are treated with respect and dignity.
Men Are Equally Good Parents
Perhaps due to the perception that courts’ sympathies lean toward women, men want it to be known that they are just as vulnerable during divorce as women are. Especially when it comes to custody battles, men say that women are viewed as better parents by the courts, despite laws in place that require the sexes’ equal treatment.
Most states follow a “best interests of the child” standard that requires courts to consider several factors when determining custody — none of which is the parents’ sex. Custody cases are not intended to favor one parent over another. Yet according to a 2011 study, many people perceive that the law favors mothers over fathers when it comes to parenting duties and support payments. That perception persists even though several research studies have shown that there is no evidence to support it.
Many in men’s rights movements argue that they aren’t being given equal treatment when it comes to marriage dissolution and child custody arrangements. That is why it is important for them to take legal advice from a firm that understands their unique perspective.
